Seahawks announce Carroll’s coaching staff

The Seahawks have retained two coaches and hired 18 others to first-year coach Pete Carroll‘s staff, the team announced Thursday morning.

“I’m excited about the makeup of our staff,” Carroll said in a statement released by the team. “It’s an energetic group of teachers with a nice blend of experience. Now we can turn our focus on the task at hand –- competing in the NFC West.”

Defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and defensive line coach Dan Quinn are the two holdovers from the 2009 season, and the 18 newcomers bring college and NFL experience, ranging from Super Bowl victories as both players and coaches to national championships in the college ranks.
